so i’m sitting here in the studio wit my niggas, thinking about everything that’s happened in the last two years and i always end up writing these long ass captions but fuck it. my new album, east atlanta love letter, is out and i hope you guys enjoy it. this is a continuation of a story i started two years ago and to even be talking about a second project is a blessing. i don’t have any expectations, i didn’t make this for any awards (but y’all are welcome to nominate a nigga 😂), i just did what came natural with the help of my amazing friends who happen to be producers. the only thing i think of everyday i wake up is making music that encourages people to feel and grow and communicate. i want to thank my daughter who can’t read this, but everything i do is for or inspired by you. i want to lead by example and leave behind the story of a father who not only loved you, but loved what he did, and served a purpose bigger than himself. i came a long fucking way from having nothing and i will never take it for granted. there’s so many people i want to thank but i don’t want to miss anyone. you all inspire me. let’s take this shit as far as we can. #eastatlantaloveletter 💌 link in bio
